Ok, so we’re new here, so the Chapel Lane extension was news to me. It sounds like that Jefferson County still needs to sell us the land, a sewer system has to be moved, the State of Alabama has to start the bridge/fly-over and the City of Hoover has to finish it. Wow.
I guess the seed for this is the parking lot that Patton Chapel is during rush-hour(s).That has to be it. I mean going down Patton Chapel isn’t bad during non-peak times.
I do hope that this does ease traffic and not bring more up into Bluff Park. And I hope all the folks living down Chapel Lane are on board. Though the map makes it look like it’s businesses, ball parks and city buildings. So maybe home owners won’t take a hit.
Has anyone seen an engineer’s drawing on this project? I’m really curious now, but I can’t find anything online. Please share if you know where to find something.
The long-time-running Discovering Alabama has made the jump to iTunes. This is great news for them and good news for us. We are always more likely to catch an episode if we can sync and take it on the go.
They currently have 98 episodes listed, with nothing more recent than October 2010. Their iTunes catalog seem to be a mix of audio and video offerings. Plus, a lot of the lengths of the pieces vary. So there should be something for everyone. Best of all… it’s free!
We originally ran across this over on BhamWiki who, of course, has a very informative write up on the series.
The site MyFoxAL had a featured post on Bluff Park’s Tip Top Grill. The food and view both get the notice they deserve. What’s also cool about this feature is that it was done by a local Bluff Park resident and blogger. How cool is that!? So swing by Grass Stains and check in on more happenings in Bluff Park life.
